Unfortunately, as the files will need to be read locally on the server, you would not be able to set a parked domain to be able to read from a different account. You would need those files to reside within the same server. While a parked domain could not be set up, you could still redirect to another site without changing the URL if you would like to. An article on that can be found at the following:

Hello Kiranbabu,

Yes, you can use the Parked Domain feature in the cpanel to do this. This only works if the domain you are parking for is the primary domain on the cpanel account. Using your example domains, xyz.com is the primary domain. Parking abc.com will point to content on xyz.com but still display abc.com in the address bar of the browser. You can also add other parked domains, such as def.com to also point to xyz.com.

If xyz.com was an addon domain and not the primary domain name, then parking abc.com to it would still display the content from xyz.com, but the address bar in the browser would change to xyz.com. In effect, if you are not pointing to the primary domain name when parking, then it simply acts as a redirect.

Kindest Regards,

Hello Kiranbabu,

You may park domains on your cPanel even if they are registered at other registrars. They do, however, need to be pointed to our name servers in order for the domains to be able to park on your account.
